An English translation of Cambridge University Library MS Ii. 4. 26.
"Mr. White's translation, in modern English, reproduces without 'period quaintness' what was soberly related in the manuscript and as soberly received by contemporary readers. His notes are as frequent, often as long, and always as amusing and amazing as Bayle's. ... They make it the kind of book that will endure to delight equally the specializing student and the roving reader." - cover copy
